Members May Be Liable for Defamation of Board President

Facts: The president of a condominium association and her father, the association manager, sued a group of members for defamation. The president alleged that the members conspired to remove her from the board. The complaint alleged that from August 2006 until May 2007, the members maliciously made false and defamatory statements about her and her father to other condominium owners in the building. The complaint further alleged that “throughout 2006 and 2007, defendants continued to make false and defamatory statements.”
